The exploration of space is the greatest endeavor that humankind has ever undertaken.  What does it take to be part of this incredible journey?  What does it take to become an astronaut?  Explore the amazing worlds of inner and outer space, from floating around the International Space Station to maneuvering through microscopic regions of the human body.  Discover the perils that lurk in space.

12:00noon & 2:00pm

Sunday
2:00pm

Take an imaginative look at the size and scale of our universe. Explore the Universe beginning with space probes reaching out to our Solar System then telescopes collecting the light from the stars. If it is difficult for people to conceive the distances to the stars then how about looking at the time it has taken for the light from these distant objects to reach us? As we travel back in time we will visit nebulae, globular clusters, galaxies and black holes. With a lighthearted storytelling style and unique characters, BIG brings a really big subject down to Earth. 
Narrated by Sir Richard Attenborough
